My husband and I eat there every time we go to Chicago. Their Irish stew is the best! Located among the best restaurants in Chicago this little pub is always packed. Bar apps are typical menu and are excellent. Very clean, a local favorite.

Very rarely give a bad review. BUT I'm going to make an exception. Dublins was close to where we were staying so decided to pop in for a drink. The man that served us was brusque and not friendly at all. We were asked if we wanted Grey Goose Vodka. As Vodka drinkers, we like grey goose and said 'yes... More

If you are looking for a pub which that true Irish Pub charm in the middle of Chicago, I would say this is you traditional community pub. Great pub feel, dated with a little history, and standard reasonably priced pub fare on the menu. We sat inside but I believe they have a small outdoor patio as well.

Lucked out and got a table for 6 on the patio around 8:00 on a Friday evening. A couple was gracious enough to move over a table (and the Dublin's staff was nice enough to ask) so two tables could be pushed together. Had a nice meal and beers while watching the pedestrian traffic. Three of out party had a... More

Worst place we went in Chicago, luckily the service was quick so we didn't have to dwell in there too long.

Been here many times, but this time I ate there instead of just drinking at bar. Took FOREVER to get any service. Food good, but pretty expensive for pub food. I wouldn't rush back any time soon.

Dublin's is a great place to grab a beer in Rush Triangle. The nachos are really good too. It's just a bit pricey for hanging out a neighborhood bar.

We came here after a late night out at 2 am. This place was still filled with people, loved the atmosphere that was in this place. I would recommend two dished here more than anything, the chicken tenders are a must!! Also the shrimp scampi pasta was good too. Bruschetta was the only bad thing we tried, the bread solid,...

We wanted to eat after the Cubs game so we gave this a try, a waitress had recommended it for late night dining. I had their bison burger special and it was amazing!!! Cheese, bacon and egg on a pretzel bun need I say more. Hubby got the Italian beef and our friend had the pastrami.

We called in here a couple of nights for drinks and ate there one evening. It's a good place for a drink - nicely busy and some good beers on draught. The food was ok - large portions and typical pub type quality.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
